Ms Rose Agbemakplido, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Rose Auto, a car auto-body spray in Ho has urged females to endeavour to venture into male dominated professions for a proper sustainable development.
According to her, it will encourage more women and also attract even the men to love to work with the females when women go into men domain for their professional careers.
“When you go into men domain as a woman you will surely excel because is an area many women will not want to venture. It gives you more customer attraction and respect. The men will like to work with you and by so doing you can also contribute your qouta to the development of the state in the form of paying taxes” she said.
She said this in interview with Kingsley Attitsogbui on Thursday during a 4-day skills upgrade workshop organised for auto-body sprayers in the Ho municipality of the Volta Region.
Highlighting the key roles women play in the socio-economic development of every human gathering, Ms Agbemakplido encouraged women to do more, especially defying all odds and setbacks to excel in life.
She also advised all entrepreneurs and potential businessmen and women to consider starting from a humble beginning, as she recounted her experience about 32years ago.
She said at the time, auto car spraying seemed a job for the males alone however, with perseverance and determination, she excelled in it.
She called for government and developmental agency support in terms of capacity building workshops, collaborations, sponsorship and technological advancement for all artisans for better socio-economic development.
Dr. Daniel Agbeko, a Lecturer at the Ho Technical University Multidisciplinary Department, charged the participants to value good customer care/service, honesty and teamwork, financial discipline and workshop safety and sanitation among others as measures in maintaining the workshops.
He charged the participants to begin to add more technology to the work as the world moves into that direction.
More than forty (40) auto car sprayers participated in training.
The skills upgrade program for car sprayers in Ho was organised by Rose Auto in collaboration with Bamson Company Limited, Ho Technical University with funding from the Ghana Skills Development Fund (GSDF).
